Basics Building Construction

By Andreas Achilles, Ludwig Steiger, Diane Navratil, Nils Kummer and Katrin Hanses.

Clearly structured and focused, this compendium explains the characteristics of various important construction materials (masonry, timber, concrete, steel, glass). The book familiarizes the reader with the most common construction systems, their rules and applications, and enables architectural students to contemplate creative solutions that may also be outside the standardized solutions offered by the construction industry.
